Capricorn (Lat. The Goat), a constellation of the southern celestial hemisphere, which from its position on the ecliptic was adopted as one of the signs of the zodiac. Its stars are somewhat mixed up with those of Aquarius. The Goat appears on the southern meridian in September, and thus gives its name to the Tropic of Capricorn.
